Good Actors In Bad Movies: Glenn Close and Zombies?

– Posted in: Film Review

My viewing schedule for the last month was so full of good actors in bad movies that it might be subtitled, “When Bad Movies Happen To Good Actors.” In my Amazon Prime watchlist, I streamed The Girl With All The Gifts, or the film I remember as Glenn Close and zombies. I loved the diversity

Zombies In Kindergarten, Korea, and Everyday Life: Kevin Wayne Williams, Train to Busan, The Returned and The Rezort

– Posted in: Film Review

My favorite zombie entertainment choices are still the George Romero classics, 28 Days Later more recently, and The Walking Dead for the small screen.

I had read a good review of Breathe In, so was excited to see it come up on the NY Film Society calendar. Oh well. The acting is good, even if the plot unfolds like a story my 12-year old would make up. Cue the excitable, tween voice: …and then an exchange student comes for

I am a creature feature fan, and

After cramming in so many live screenings at theaters in the run up to the SAG Awards, it’s refreshing to curl up on the couch and tackle my Netflix queue. In keeping with the FBC Films target genres, I watched a creature feature, horror film and a thriller recently. Blackfish is absolutely a creature feature,

On My Watchlist: If You Build It

– Posted in: Film Review

I was lucky enough to get a free ticket to an advance screening of the documentary, If You Build It (thanks NY WIFT!). If You Build It is directed by Patrick Creadon and tells the story of Studio H, an alternative education program launched by two designers, Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller, in a woefully
